Buffy July 20, 2011

Title: Ten Trips Still To Be Taken
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 3114
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Drusilla

It’s an odd combination, but it works, and the use of Drusilla’s POV gives us the Doctor and his travels in a new light. Beautiful, and clever, and sinister.

Title: Apocalypse: The bird in the box
Author: Calapine
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 3276
Characters: Harry Sullivan, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, Liz Shaw, Rupert Giles.

A dark and Doctor-less UNIT AU crossover, which is very well-written and not without hope. It’s also an especially good Harry story – well-characterised, and not an imbecile.

Title: Remembrance
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 200
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Angel

The Doctor and Angel, comparing notes, when it comes to certain kinds of sacrifices. Double drabble.

Title: So We Sailed On To The Sun
Author: ProfessorSpork
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2747
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, Lorne, Angel, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Cordelia Chase.

Nice thoughtful, fun crossover, with all the voices particularly accurately done.

Buffy

Title: Infiltration
Author: Forge
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 12,868 (8 chapters)
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Faith Lehane, Rupert Giles, Willow Rosenberg, Kennedy, Buffy Summers, Vi, Xander Harris

Dark, and intriguing. WIP, but there’s enough here to make it worth recommending nonetheless. This author is consistently excellent.

Title: Brightening
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 200
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Buffy Summers

Brief vignette of the two in passing. Lovely.

Angel

Title: The Enemy Within
Author: mrtc2003
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1545
Characters: The Master (Ainley), Angel

This is an interesting, dark crossover that brings out the similarities and differences in both characters and works very well in looking at the gap in the Master’s story between Survival and the TV Movie. (There are a couple of basic punctuation slips in the dialogue, but the rest is well-written enough to make it easy to overlook.)

Title: Boys (or Down With the Patriarchy)
Author: uktechgirl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3392
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Angel, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Winifred Burkle, Charles Gunn, Harmony, Lorne, Spike. (Set S5 for Angel; hints of both Ace/Fred, and Wesley/Fred).

This is just gorgeous, and I don’t say that lightly. It’s well-written and with everyone in character, some lovely gems of lines, while musing on the nature of Doctors and Companions, Watchers and Slayers, and Boys and Girls. And Angel phones security just to say, “You suck.” If there were more crossovers like this, fandom would be a better place.

Title: Strangers in the Night
Author: Suzanne
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 2755
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Angel, Charley

A chance encounter on a railway station in 1932. A good, thoughtful piece with excellent characterisation all round. And I do like the nod to Brief Encounter, too.

 

Angel March 6, 2010

Title: Choices
Author: Forge
Rating: All Ages / PG
Word Count: 3669
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Illyria

A note first: something odd has happened with the formatting in the first chapter – don’t be put off. This is a great story, note perfect for Illyria and Seven and the elusive quality of Angel as a show.

Title: Winged Shadows
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 16,545
Characters: Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown, Angel, Cordelia Chase, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Charles Gunn, Lorne, Lilah Morgan.

There’s a new menace in LA and it’s not the weirdo in the patchwork coat. It’s something shadowy and dangerous. That makes it the business of Angel Investigations, Wolfram and Hart – and a passing Time Lord.

(Another of my own sorry efforts, I’m afraid.)

Two more!

Title: Angels & Drums
Author: Mhalachi
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3375
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Buffy Summers

Ten meets Buffy and finds that she remembers the Year That Never Was. It should be recced just for Buffy asking to hear a story about Martha: “Girls who save the world should be remembered.”

Title: Where Bunnies Roam
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 871
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Anya, Buffy Summers

In which we learn that the Doctor shares Anya’s mistrust of bunnies. A nice bit of fun, with some back history for the Doctor and Anya, which is obviously very entertaining.

 

Buffy November 15, 2009

Title: The Lady of the Night, The Master of the Stars
Author: Forge
Rating: PG
Word Count:
Characters: Drusilla, The Master (Delgado)

Do I seriously need to say more than Drusilla’s narrative ‘voice’ is perfect and she meets the original Master? I feel somehow anything else is unnecessary.

***

Title: Of Blood and Time
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 682
Characters: John Smith (Human Nature), Drusilla

Another cross with an excellent Drusilla POV and a more vulnerable, human Doctor who nearly meets his end in 1913 as a result.

Title: Moving On
Author: Clarissa
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 569
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Rupert Giles

A brief character vignette with an ending that brought a smile to my face. Somehow, I just love the idea of these two together. Hmm… (Interesting idea; both of them might have stories to share about leading teenagers into danger at a later time).
